A large hotel with services by good beachPosted May 8, 2015
Pros: Location on the sea and beach. Had a big garden and was quiet.
Cons: Would be nice if they paid close attention to people's room choices (took hours to shift to the room type requested)
Location: On the beach so typical beach activities, including boat tours, diving/snorkeling, kite surfing. Nearby are interesting spice farm tours.
We visited during the middle of the rainy season so had some of the inevitable heavy rain. The hotel has good facilities and is spread over a large area with well kept gardens. The hotel next door is a 'sister' hotel so there is the option of eating or doing activities there. The beach in front of the complex is white sand and quite wide at low tide. Some of the downsides for me were that I thought they overcharged for many items (food, drinks, spa) when they were much cheaper in other local places. The staff tried to be helpful, but some things were forgotten, like our request to shift to an upstairs room (as requested at booking) and the process took 4 hours! For those (including families with kids) who wanted to eat early, they were out of luck as dinner started at 7:30. Overall an ok visit, but glad we didn't stay longer.

Bra - men noe kan bli bedrePosted Apr 10, 2015 on Hotels
Jevnt over meget bra. Variert buffet bade til frokost og middag. Men negativt at dagen med barbeque kom vi 45 minutter etter start og det var tomt for mange av råvarene. Fluene som surrer rundt maten i store mengder kan også påvirke appetitten til europeiske gjester. I Påsken når vi besøkte hotellet var det litt regn og internet var svært ustabilt. Personalet i resepsjonen var svært interesserte i å selge sightseeing til oss. Når vi opplyste at vi hadde booket hos andre følte vi at de ble skuffet og vi opplevde dette som ubehagelig. Greit å finne ledige solsenger. Jevnt over meget hyggelig og positivt personale.

Smukt men ensomt beliggende hotelPosted Jan 27, 2015 on Hotels
Smukt indrettet hotel og flotte store værelser (med den største seng,vi nogensinde har oplevet) som desværre lå lidt langt væk fra strand m.m. Vi savnede, at der var landsbyer eller lignende man kunne gå til- føltes meget "ensomt", når nu der var relativt få gæster på hotellet. Alle i personalet var søde og venlige.

Zanzibar WeekendPosted Sep 20, 2014 on Hotels
Beautiful spot - great value for the price when you do the meals included option...food was fabulous. About an hour drive from the airport so recommend arranging transport in advance. Dive shop on site with great staff as well if that is what you are planning

Excellent, very kind service.Posted Sep 19, 2014
Cons: Keep it as it is
We had a wonderful 10 days stay at this hotel. The service is very good and the waiters and waitresses very kind and service orientated. The environment is beautiful. Everywhere beautiful flowers. The gardiers arrange that the environment looks very nice every day. The accommodation is good. Well worth visiting.

Great spotPosted Jun 5, 2014 on Hotels
Wonderful, clean, well-appointed resort with all of the bells and whistles. Food was quite impressive relative to other high-end places I've stayed in Tanzania. (I travel there frequently for work.) The one disappointment was the presence of "beach boys" constantly bothering you to buy things from them and/or "just get to know you" on the beach. Security did a great job of keeping them away from the resort itself, but it made walking and enjoying the beautiful beach much less fun.

Tout est fait pour que vous vous sentiez bien dans cet établissement. La décoration est agréable. Les diners sont gargantuesques est vraiment bons. Ils varient tous les jours. J'avais pris la formule en demi pension ce qui est amplement suffisant. Les serveurs et serveuses de l'hôtel sont prévenants et ont toujours le sourire. Je tiens à féliciter John, Hamis et Omari. Les guerriers Massai qui s'occupent de la sécurité de l'hotel sont également très gentils. Le plus de l'hotel est la salle de sport, hotel donnant sur la plage, securité ce qui permet de profiter au maximum de son séjour au calme et dans la bonne humeur. L'hotel vous prete les serviettes de plage ce qui est très appréciable. Vous pouvez profiter des visites soit en passant par l hotel soit en passant par Hamisi un des beach boy par lequel je suis passée. Il essaye de parler en français et vous accompagne tout au long de votre périple.

Lovely getaway hotelPosted Apr 24, 2014
We stayed here for a few days recently and had a most enjoyable time. Staff very helpful, ideallic location (shame about the seaweed on the beach but what can you so). Good selection of buffet foods - could do with some more fly deterrents though. Rooms clean and spacious with toiletries provided and bottled water. Range of entertainment activities available and management seem very experienced and on the ball. Would recommend for a getaway.

Lågsäsong, låg beläggning, därför extra avspänt. Rummet utmärkt, äntligen ett vettigt myggnät. God mat, särskilt á la carte. Alltid rent och välstädat ute säväl som inne. Personalen framstår särskilt: en superb service med gott humör och vänlighet parat med härlig humor.
